In order to do justice to the trend towards integrated management systems even better, Quality Austria has not only promoted polyvalent competence of the auditors but has also consistently aligned the audit design accordingly. The integral approach helps to enhance the view on the whole and comprehensively and consistently utilise the synergies. Most qualityaustria auditors cover several standards or models as auditors or assessors, representing competence for integrated management systems in each audit.
Norms and standards, bodies of legislation and ordinances offer an enormous variety and range of models in the area of quality, the environment and security, risk and many other fields. Building on the framework of ISO 9001 for example, organisations have developed environmental management systems according to ISO 14001 and/or EMAS, security and health management according to BS OHSAS 18001, SCC, SCP or are currently in the process of implementing them. In addition a vast range of sector-specific standards has been created with requirements or guidance aligned on to specific target groups.
